During my recent visit to the Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon, I encountered a distressing situation. One of the individuals, a bearded man wearing dark sunglasses, is known for his racist views. Alongside another person, they racially profiled me, following me around despite my attempts to avoid them. Their behavior marred what should have been an enjoyable experience at the market, leaving me feeling unwelcome and uncomfortable.

We happened to be in town on a Saturday and a friend recommended that we stop here and stroll around. We looked at what was for sale and bought a few things to eat and drink.

Due to today is a rainy day. Portland Saturday Market has not many food stall and another stall there. But the view of the river side is very beautiful. It’s a good place worth to visit it,

This market was just down the street from our hotel so it was super convenient to walk a block. I am avoiding buying more stuff for the house and did not plan to buy anything. However there were some really beautiful and unique items. I ended up buying a wool hat, a sand garden with concrete balls, and a new wallet. All very well crafted. It was fun to wander up and down the aisles. We had to come back a bit later so I could get some delicious ice cream.

There was so much co stuff there. I had a burger and there rest of my family had food options from all over the globe. My kids spent lots of time looking at jewelry. I just wish I could get a non homemade beverage there.

A fantastic local craft Market. A great range of crafts, it was lovely talking to some of the stall holders and finding out about their products. If you are in Portland on a Saturday make a point of visiting. It is a must.

An okay market in a strange location. It's worth going to if you're in Portland but the farmers' market is far better.

As some have mentioned, the area is a bit rough. My husbamd and I had no problems stopping by midday. The market is definitely a must visit if you're coming to Portland. We had some delicious veggie gyros! There are a variety of food stalls and fun little shops. Not just plastic kitsch at a tourist trap like some markets.

Unfortunately as most people know, the downtown Portland area has a lot of homeless people. Even though there was a gate around part of the market area, it’s open where the Porta Johns are and a few homeless people were using them. Not that I did not feel safe, there’s just a lot of them, tents everywhere, boarded up areas.

The market itself had local artists, quite a few food booths. The empanadas were great! Pricey but tasty.

If you have time and are staying in the area, take a walk through, grab a coffee from the coffee truck and browse around.

Cool place but bad city. Won't be going again. Dirty, trashy city- not safe after dark. We prefer Seaside and the coast to I-5 corridor.
